- By: Bram Stoker
- Narrated by: Marc Nelson
- Length: 16 hrs and 39 mins
Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, the novel's influence on the popularity of vampires has been singularly responsible for many theatrical, film and television interpretations since its publication. Required listening for any fan of the genre!

Would you listen to Dracula again? Why?
No, I don't think I would listen to Dracula again because I can easily remember the story on my own. It was good and I liked it quite a bit; however, it wasn't so complicated that I need to listen again to hone in on key details.
What other book might you compare Dracula to and why?
I think that it is interesting to compare Dracula to current day vampire stories. Although Dracula is the source for vampire information, the actual story is much more mature and well-written than tales today.
Have you listened to any of Marc Nelson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, I haven't listened to Marc Nelson's other performances.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I was really shocked when partway through the story (following the perspective of only one person) it switched to the perspectives of multiple other people! Although I'm sure the entire story is about vampires (and specifically Dracula), I expected the one perspective and story line to continue throughout the entire novel.
